year of the ox

Happy Chinese New Year! Kung Hsi Fa Tsai! According to the CCC of SF

People born in the Year of the Ox are patient, speak little, and inspire confidence in others. They tend, however, to be eccentric, and bigoted, and they anger easily. They have fierce tempers and although they speak little, when they do they are quite eloquent. Ox people are mentally and physically alert. Generally easy-going, they can be remarkably stubborn, and they hate to fail or be opposed.

Is this you?

In celebration of Chinese New Year I made potstickers, wore a red shirt, and didn’t wash my hair (yuck, what a weird tradition).

My head hurts. Not from Chinese New Year but from being awakened by a text message from a coworker at 7:30 am about the weather and the condition of the roads. I now have bragging rights for being the first one on this office on this icy winter day.

  1. What’s up with the hair washing? You’re the second person I’ve heard do this! I’d never heard of it for Lunar New Year. But it’s not good to wash your hair everyday anyway. My hair always looks better the day after. 🙂 Glad you got to work safely.

  2. I googled Chinese New Year traditions. It’s a new one for me too.

    I’m really glad I didn’t fall on my ass yesterday!
